The Under 18’s football team successfully knocked strong favourites St. Ambrose out of the Hannah Cup. The boys battled hard to gain a 2-2 draw, before winning 5-4 on penalties. A hard fought game in wintery conditions, was almost abandoned ten minutes before the final whistle due to heavy snow fall. 2 goals and a man-of-the-match performance from Sam McNee saw Our Lady’s make it to penalties. Michael Breslin held his nerve to score the 5th penalty to win the tie, after Sean McBride saved superbly.
Unfortunately, the boys were knocked out in the quarter finals away to Cardinal Newman in a tightly contested 5-3 loss. They picked themselves back up to comfortably defeat Cumbernauld Academy 5-1 in the league with goals coming from Lewis Wilson, Daniel Drew, Matthew Doogan, Andrew Toner and Kern Marks.
The boys had another victory last night with a resounding 3-0 win over Airdrie Academy. Goals scored by Ricco McCreery, Sam McNee and Kern Marks and the Man of the Match was Andrew Toner.
